There are several choose-your-own-adventure style games that can be experienced in a text-only format, but 'Humani: Jessie's Story' is a unique one that unfolds through Facebook Messenger.

The conversation-based narrative game introduces an artificially intelligent chat bot as a storyteller and explores a new kind of way for players to engage in gameplay, just by typing "Hi."

Humani: Jessie's Story tells of a young woman who is going through an identity crisis and must find herself a new boyfriend, job and an apartment by the end of the day. Naturally, this scenario leaves plenty of room for things to go wrong in Jessie's life, which is where the game's players come in to offer helpful advice like a true friend.
